The weather is finally warming up and I am dreaming of barbecues and picnics. After you have your hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, or other yummy foods off the grill, you have to have a Creamy And Delicious Red Potato Salad. My favorite Spring and Summer side dish is potato salad, and I have several variations I like to make. This one made with red potatoes is one of my favorites! Creamy, tangy, and full of flavor it is the perfect accompaniment to anything grilled outdoors but also fried chicken, sandwiches, or any other warm weather dish.

Your potato salad looks so good! I've been wanting to try adding Greek yogurt to potato salad, I'll have to do that next time! This sounds delicious!

I was just thinking about making potato salad today. Eating organic means all I will have access to is read potatoes for a while. I love the yogurt, pinned, followed you here from the Foodie Friday party.

Never thought to boil the eggs with the potatoes at the same time. Great idea, and the recipe sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing this with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinned! 🙂
Found your site by googling images of creamy Redskin potato salad! Yours looked the best! I made mine with fresh diced onion and omitted the bacon... Just cuz I didn't feel like crying it. I used the steam in bag potatoes and they came out silky and soft! I added celery for a bit of crunch. Sooo good I couldn't wait the hour!!! Also, I used Nellie's brand eggs the yolks were huge so mine came out a more yellow but so good!!! Thank you for posting!!!
Lol I meant frying!!
